ears and swimming

Post by musculArgirl2 »

ever since i began swimming a few years ago ears have been itchy sometimes. I don't remember them ever being that way before. I know a few years ago doctor looked in ear and said they were dry. But i haven't been swimming in almost a year now and they still itch.

Any suggestions? I could call a nurse a i suppose and ask what i should put in it. Want to start swimming again that's why i'm asking.

Is it possible you could swim with ear plugs in, as maybe that might lessen the problem, if the itching is in some way related to chemicals in the water like chlorine.
